French "Troupe de Terre" or Regular Regiments in North America
1755-1763
Compiled by Robert Henderson

The uniform distinctions are for the period 1757-1760. Prior to this, battalions arriving in Canada or at Louisbourg in 1755 wore a special uniform designed by the Ministry of the Navy for service in North America. This uniform consisted of a collarless greyish-white "justaucorps" (coat) with blue cuffs and lined with greyish-white woollen flannel or serge, blue "gilet" (waistcoat), greyish-white breeches, all with pewter buttons, and tricorns trimmed with inexpensive silver lace. All the regiments ordered to North America provided their 2nd Battalions (exception: 2nd and 3rd Battalions of Berry).
